Projection content generator, powered by AI
Get started with projection mapping with one application. LumaMap brings together all the tools needed to transform a plain surface into a captivating projection display. Mapping, AI and creative art tools, all in one place.
Made for beginners
(and for pros)
LumaMap’s intuitive tools and straight-forward workflow make it easy for beginners to get started with projection mapping without the learning curve. The creative potential enables even pros to level up their displays too.
One Click Wonders
Combine a photo with creative art tools and an imaginative text prompt and click Generate. Watch as your artistic vision is brought to life by the in-built AI generator. Hours of design work can now be achieved with just a single click.
Make live creative edits to your designs and preview from your projector in real-time as you work. LumaMap’s workflow is fast, interactive and fun.
Unique to you
No two AI generations are alike. This means you won’t see a projected display like yours anywhere else. It’s one-of-a-kind, completely unique to you and your vision.
Be the Picasso of Pixels. No Art Degree Needed

You need an internet connection to use the AI features of the software.
LumaMap is the full, paid mapping application which includes powerful AI and art tools.
LumaMap Lite is a free version of the application that allows you to import an image or video, use the mapping tools and export your mapping as an image or video file. LumaMap Lite does not contain any of the AI or art tool features that are included in the full version of the application.
No, at the current time you can only generate static AI images with LumaMap, not AI video. However, this is a feature we hope to add in the future.
The application handles just one piece of media at a time.
In principle you can project on any surface, but some surfaces are more suitable others.
LumaMap works best when the projector is close to perpendicular with the projection surface and there is not too much perspective in the reference photo you import into the software.
LumaMap’s workflow is currently not well suited to cake mapping, but this is something we hope to improve in the future.
LumaMap enables you to create creative facades using AI which can be used as standalone assets or taken into other software and combined with further animations and effects.
LumaMap also helps you quickly produce the ‘projector’s eye view’ mapping guide which is the starting point of a mapping show.
LumaMap is not intended to replace software like DaVinci Resolve or After Effects for animating complete projection shows.
Yes, you can play media from LumaMap and output it through an external display.
Yes, absolutely. When you are happy with your mapping you can export what is in your canvas. You can then load that exported image or video on to a media player connected directly to your projector.
You cannot output to more than one display from LumaMap.
If you want to use more than one projector you need to go through the mapping workflow for each projector individually.
LumaMap is using DreamStudio by Stability.ai, the developers behind Stable Diffusion.
There is no limit to how many images you can generate. However, LumaMap does have a credit system whereby any actions involving AI (generating and upscaling) have a credit cost.
The software comes bundled with 1000 credits. This will give you up to 5000 image generations. You can use these up as quickly or slowly as you like. There is no daily limit and they don’t expire.
If you use up those 1000 credits, you can sign up to DreamStudio and purchase your own credits. You can then enter your API into the software to keep generating images to your heart’s content. Learn how to add your own API key.
